Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country (GHWIC) Recipients and Funding
Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country (GHWIC) is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) largest investment to improve American Indian and Alaskan Native (AI/AN) tribal health and is focused on health promotion and chronic disease prevention.
CDC funds 27 GHWIC recipients across three components.
Component one funds tribes and Urban Indian Organizations and implements strategies to prevent chronic diseases.
Component two funds Tribal Organizations; each allocates at least half their funds to at least four tribes in their area. This expands the program’s reach to more than 130 tribes to further put into action strategies to prevent chronic diseases.
Component three funds one Tribal Organization, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium Inc., to serve as a program-wide coordinating center supporting peer learning, evaluation, and communication across all Component One and Two recipients.
GHWIC recipients are listed below with funding amounts for the current cycle. To visit the awardee sites, go to the GHWIC Awardees page.
